Crescencio Ortiz doesn’t need anyone or anything to live out his dreams, but when Steve Vance steps into his life, a sexy leather daddy on tap begins to take on a certain appeal. When Steve reconnects Chenco to his half-brother Mitch Tedsoe and his tribe of influential friends, Chenco goes from homeless to living out every dream he’s ever had, including performing his drag act on the Las Vegas stage. Every dream, that is, except getting Steve Vance to see him as more than just a helpless boy he needs to save.
Steve has too many demons of his own to get involved with Chenco, ones he knows his would-be lover is too young to slay. Yet as he gets to know the bright, determined young man whose Jennifer Lopez-inspired drag act redefines fabulous and fierce, whose budding inner masochist makes Steve’s sadist tremble with need, Steve begins to realize Chenco’s relentless tough love might be the only thing that can set him free.
Warnings: This story contains fabulous drag queens, exhibitionist secondary characters, and steaming-hot BDSM play.
